    It wasn't meant to be helpful, and wasn't in response to you or your question. Also, I clearly stated doctor/owner which I'm pretty sure doesn't apply to you since you said you don't get to make the...

    So you're saying patients only have to pay half price for lenses as long as the optical doesn't want to make any money on the transaction? What a shock. Anyone owner/doctor contracting with these...

    Ha. Tell the "optician" to do their own damn job. I know you can't say that. But you should try to politely tell them that you can't, so they stop sending you things like this. Send the frame back...

    I honestly didn't think of Nikon as it is not really prevalent in the US. But looking at the Vision Council/OLA identifier they do seem to be a 2 drop. I don't think I have ever seen a Nikon lens...

    Maybe somewhere? But I would say unlikely. IOT are all 4 drop, Crossbows look like they are all 4 drop. Zeiss and Seiko are the only ones I know of that are not 4 drop.

    They have been posting on optiboard since 2005, I don't think their user name is relevant anymore. 17 years and they don't know the basics of PALs and lensometry? Give me a break. I live and work in...

    What do you mean you don't know where the markings are? They are engraved on the lenses 34mm apart. Almost all PALs use a 4 drop and the DRP is just above the fitting cross. Zeiss uses a 6 drop, and...

    I don't think I assumed anything. I even went out of my way to say I don't understand the question. I guess we are just working in dramatically different parts of the optical world. I buy frames and...

    Trial frame the full near Rx. If the VA is good in the trial frame the fitting, or lens design, is off. If the VA in the trial frame is not good, the Rx is off. Start with the easiest solution.

    13 Diopters of base in prism in each eye would mean compensating the PD 4mm out per eye. Depending on the lens power, the prism amount may also need to be compensated.
